I remember watching this 1951 comedy on lazy weekend afternoons while growing up. It's among Bob Hope's best, brimming with Hope's trademark wisecracks about cowardism & his supposed prowess with women, all set against an atmospheric backdrop of menace (in this case, spy business) which served Hope well. Gorgeous brunette Hedy Lamarr is his leading lady here; but of course, it's really Hope's movie all the way.
This is one of those rarely seen comic gems which vanished from the movie landscape years ago. So glad it's finally getting its DVD release!
